GEB is one of those books you can't believe noone wrote before. it is absolutely brilliant. the ideas are not simple but DRH explains them in such a way thateven a layman can grasp. Godel Bach and Escher 3 distinct shadows of one entity looked upon from various points of view.
It has it all : math, logic, art , AI.
this is a book that you will make you go "wow" each page you get by.
do yourselves a favor and read it, a few words can not convey the entire idea which is being develped as you march through the 700 odd pages.
Not a dull moment.
A must.

It's a little complicated for a beginner, and thus is it hard to read at some points that have complex ideology, except that, great book

You'd better have a pencil and paper ready, throughout. Perspective-expanding.

A finely structured book, alternating dialogue and discourse in an eternal golden braid (this becomes clear by the end); this book is a gem. If you know nothing about Bach, then at least you will gain an appreciation of his work and history from the first page.Leading from an analysis of musical forms the reader is introduced to the concept of recursion. Building on this,the author expands the theme to include the art of Escher and the mathematics of Godel (art of Godel and Mathematics of Escher? ). With delightful ease you are taken on a journey. By the end, you will know how far you've gone,, you'll have a good idea where you are, and you will remember specific landmarks from the route. Well worth reading, and re-reading too.
